MLSA Parents & Players:
We thank you for your continual support of Mt Lebanon soccer. Registration for the Fall-2020/Spring 2021 Travel Teams has currently been extended through June 30th. Please check here for any updates as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation.
Travel soccer is a sponsored program of MLSA. The travel soccer program is organized by age and gender. It provides a highly competitive training and playing environment for those players (and their families) who have the requisite athletic ability, soccer skills, level of commitment, and can meet the other demands placed upon them.
Please see our FAQ section below to assist you with any questions and to help you become more familiar with our program. Here is the link http://www.mlsa.org/programs/travel-programs-info-registration
- In order to register your player for a Travel Soccer Tryout, you must be a registered user of our website AND register your player(s) on the website.
- Travel Soccer is a two season commitment – Fall-2020 and Spring-2021.
- The program is a total of roughly 16-20 weeks (8-10 weeks in the fall and 8-10 weeks in the spring) with two weekday practices during each of those weeks.
- A player can expect to have 14-16 Sunday games (7 or 8 in each of the fall and spring seasons)

Important: For players planning to tryout for the High School or potentially the Middle School team (If developed), we ask that you also register and tryout for the travel team as well.

If your player makes a school team, MLSA will refund you 100% of your registration fee.
